It’s a snow day here in my part of Connecticut and my boy just came in from playing in the snow ready for a nice hot cup of Hot Cocoa. BUT, there was no hot cocoa mix to be found! What’s a Mama to do?
Whip some up, of course!
- 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar (I like mine less sweet so I use 2 cups)
- 1 1/4 cups cocoa
- 2 cups powdered milk
- 1/2 cup powdered creamer (use can use all powdered milk if you don't have creamer)
- 1 tsp salt
- pinch cinnamon
- Put all ingredients into a large bowl and whisk until completely combined.
- To make Cocoa:
- 1/4 cup cocoa mix to 3/4 cups hot water. You may use milk for richer cocoa, but we prefer milk.
Not only is this a great mix to have on hand for your pwn family, but you can put it in nice containers and give it as a Holiday gift! Perfect for bus drivers, teachers, mailperson. Would be super cute with a little mug, too!
I like to add a pinch of red pepper, or a little powdered coffee powder for a different taste!
